TEAM

We’re very much a family-oriented business. We encourage a team atmosphere, and value all of our employees – they’re key to our success. Leading by example, we work together with our team to produce high-quality products to ensure customer satisfaction. Our Production Team Members start each morning with stretches and a group meeting; daily targets are established, communicated and maintained. A-1 Pallet’s culture brings our team together to work in harmony.

 

I can’t remember the last time I sent a recommendation to a company as I don’t usually brag about any company that costs me money. With this being said I have been very impressed with the service A-1 Pallet has provided. From day 1 your service has been more than excellent. The phone is answered immediately and emails responded to promptly. Everyone in the company has been friendly and professional whether it be production staff, sales or management. Any problems that have come up (although rare) were dealt with immediately. I have had dealings with many of your competitors and I can say without a doubt that A-1 has been outstanding. It has been a pleasure doing business with you and I would not hesitate to recommend your company. Keep up the good work and thanks for all your help.

CULTURE

Commitment ~ we are committed to the Vision, Mission and Culture of A-1 Pallet. We give 100% to ourselves and our team so that we will succeed.

 

Fun ~ we enjoy participating and interacting with happy people with good attitudes in an inviting environment. Laughter comes easily and lightly.

 

Communication ~ we speak positively of our fellow team members. We speak openly and honestly to protect the integrity of ourselves and our teammates by not making assumptions. We have the opportunity to update each other on our successes and our learning processes of the prior day.

 

Team Work ~ we are Team Players and Team Leaders. We co-operate and find the best possible solutions to achieve our team goals. We are flexible in our work and able to adapt to any changing priorities together.

 

Creating a Tribe ~ there are no mistakes, only lessons; we have an A-1 Pallet tribal language…or “the call of the lesson”…for example: a load of wood is accidentally spilled and the witnesses sound out with an “oooooooh” indicating to the tribe to gather around. Together we laugh it off, learn from the scenario and help clean up before heading back to our work stations.

 

Physical Labour ~ we enjoy group stretches every morning to prepare our bodies and help prevent injuries from occurring. We also work together to provide the best setups to ensure that we have minimal movements and steps to complete the tasks and create a positive One-Piece Flow of motion.

 

Learning ~ we enjoy positive growth and improvements together. We utilize systems to ensure consistency and maintain results. We allow cross training and have the opportunity to grow within the organization.

 

Excellence ~ we strive for excellence. Good enough is not a term used at A-1 Pallet. We pride ourselves on our outstanding customer service with every action we take, producing quality that we are proud of.

 

Leadership ~ we lead by example, showing that we are capable of doing ourselves that which we ask of others. We follow through on our promises and agreements.

 

Ownership ~ we are responsible and accountable for our actions and our outcomes.

 

Supportive ~ we encourage and acknowledge each other’s efforts. We like high fives, fist bumps, and group cheers. We show our appreciation to our teammates easily, openly and often.

 

Abundance ~ we are abundant people. We are grateful for our accomplishments and for the accomplishments of those around us. We are rewarded with abundance to the levels at which we create it in our lives.
